I think the system that David Allen teaches, GTD, is very good and sounds tight and operationally very do-able. It's just a matter of implementation. I started out with a hardcover black notebook with tabs for some of the categories he mentions in this book, and so far, the system of getting things down (or in an "inbox" as it's explained in the book) and breaking things down into little actionable steps has been invaluable in moving forward in a few of our looming, delayed projects (sort office, transfer electronic files....). There are some parts of the system which are harder to implement: the last few chapters about the view from 5000, 10000 feet, etc, were a bit more mysterious than immediately applicable, but even so, I think that once one is able to break things down and apply the principles in the book, it is possible to have a very organized, ordered lifestyle for both work and home.
